Have you Been Called a Homophobe Today?

they used to light them up like candles (the good old days) over things like the Pope or the Filioque now they don’t light them up (sure some still light them up, but not they) or at least they don’t stand in the open holding matchings to the straw and the human (I have some friends that still see they hands,  the straw, the matches) it’s like this, see they have they agenda (a different agenda is still an agenda) they are social engineers they cardinals, rebel rowsers, they you don’t even know they like to influence and be influenced (with money and what not) don’t let them, don’t let them them is they they is them these are those does are dees I’m as dumb as the next guy but I know when a fire’s in the hole when the labels are fraudulent that it’s good to be called  a homophobe today (as it was most always) some things don’t change but the nomenclature of the wood that feeds the fire if you’re under their skin deep enough just maybe  they won’t be able to light you without setting themselves afire.

MSS, I was going to skip this one because it seems all over the map, poignant, and the humor is not humorous enough to advocate satire. Then again, here I am- The indictment of a changing theological dogma, in light of a changing sociological perspective has the panache to capitalize on the entire verse. The missing aspect of this piece is the media who don’t care whether a perspective is fraudulent or not, long as they can spin it, time and time again till the fraudulent becomes social mantra- that’s another story. Your cryptic references are quite compelling, the fire in the hole, wood feeding the fire, deep enough- and after reading this several times, I am ambivalent as to which side of the agenda is most irritating to the writer, ecclesiastical liberalism notwithstanding. As I said, I should have just let this one go; note; I hate advertisements, they’re so much like labels, seldom with any global, moral validity.

First time I have ever read a poem that deals with such a subject and you do it with uncompromising zeal. the last two lines are lit matches onto themselves
